PSA: I just read my email from Missouri Star and this very same jelly roll is the Daily Deal for today! This is only good for August 30th, 2016.
I had a couple questions about my 16 patch blocks that I posted. I will try to answer them here. First, the blocks finish at 8 inches (8 1/2 inches unfinished). My jelly roll only had 40 strips, so I cut another couple strips from stash. I will set my blocks 6 by 7 so it will be 48 by 56 inches before borders. Quilts of Valor must be at least 55 by 65 inches, and I prefer to make them bigger than that.
When I made my blocks, I paired up a light strip and a dark strip and stitched them together.
Then I cut these strip sets in half and stitched the two halves together lengthwise. This gave me a strip set approximately 21 inches long with four strips, light dark, light dark. I sub cut this into 2 1/2 inch strips .
I got enough of these strips to make two blocks from each combination. I hope this makes sense. My blocks are all done and I have nothing left over here to give a better demonstration with. I promise it is easier than it sounds! If there is interest, I can make up a tutorial when I get home. I am happy to say that I did get my blocks sewn together last night.
